The restaurants of Serre Chevalier at the service of gastronomy
Gastronomy is a real institution in France and is part of the French art of living. As proof, the French gastronomic meal and its rituals have been listed as intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO since 2010.
Without necessarily opting for an ultra refined meal, it is possible to enjoy yourself while eating. Serre Chevalier offers you some sixty restaurants spread throughout the valley, from Briançon to Monêtier-les-Bains.
Do you prefer to have lunch on the slopes or in the valley?
You have not neglected breakfast (very important, breakfast before sport) but, at lunch time, your stomach is rumbling. To refuel, it's time to take a break from eating.
Will you opt for a lunch on the terrace of an altitude restaurant?
I choose my altitude restaurant
You will have the triple pleasure of enjoying a sumptuous view and being on the slopes to take advantage of the Serre Chevalier ski area without wasting a minute.
In the valley, in the villages and the town of Briançon which make up Serre Chevalier, you will also be able to find the restaurant and the formula which suit your mood of the day. On the snow front, in the heart of the village or in the bend of an alleyway, you will find thegourmet, friendly or unusualaddress that will allow you to start off on the right foot for the rest of the day.

Jasper, on vacation with friends, says: "During our stay, we absolutely wanted to eat a raclette in a restaurant with a typical mountain atmosphere. The restaurant owner put on the table an appliance we had never seen before: a "brézière" with two heating ramps to melt and gratinate the cheese. We actually had a piece of the cheese wheel on the table. It was an incredible moment that we shared, we all loved it. Enjoying raclette like that is something you can't do at home."
The restaurants are essential gastronomic ambassadors. But they are not the only ones in the valley to take care of your taste buds. Many service providers and businesses are there to fill your little hunger pangs.

At snack time, it's a feast for gourmets
Six-year-old Eloise wouldn't miss the pain au chocolat she gobbles up almost every afternoon after her 1st star class. "I really like skiing and my instructor is very nice. But I think my favorite part is the pain au chocolat after skiing. Sometimes we change and go to the creperie for a snack. There are crepes with raspberry jam and hot chocolates with whipped cream."
It must be said that good bakeries and other gourmet addresses are legion around here... to the delight of little Eloise and her kind!
Local products: specialties to discover in stores and markets
Eloise's parents may also have a sweet tooth (we don't know, actually) but it is likely that they are also interested in other culinary specialties. The stores are full of appetizing local products: cold cuts, cheeses, cabbage sausage, honey, jams, beer, syrups and liqueurs...
